Menya Jiro Ramen Boston: Japan-based chain just opened in Harvard Square

Menya Jiro, a Japan-based ramen chain, has just opened its first Boston location!

Menya Jiro, an international ramen chain with one location in Brooklyn, has just begun their expansion into the Boston area with the opening of their Harvard Square location on July 14. Later this year, they’re scheduled to open another location at Legacy Place in Dedham. Yet another location is planned for 50 Northern Ave. in the Seaport District in Boston proper.

Menya Jiro’s Brooklyn location has been named among the best ramen restaurants in America by Thrillist. The ramen chain hails from Kagoshima, Japan, and is characterized by its perfectly balanced pork- and chicken-based broth, accented by fried onions and garlic The soy sauce and seasonings are sent directly from Japan to Menya Jiro’s US locations, preserving an essentially Japanese flavor.

Menya Jiro Boston will also offer cold ramen, pork belly buns, onigiri, and a selection of donburi rice bowls.


The Harvard Square location is now open in Harvard Square’s Crimson Galeria.

Find it at 57 John F. Kennedy St, Cambridge, MA 02138.
